Senior Accountant (Current Employee) – Tysons Corner, VA – November 21, 2017
I like working at BT. I've found great flexibility and my manager is awesome! I've learned so much within a year than all my friends at Big4 combined. The hours can be long but from first Friday happy hour to office wide events, the firm truly try to keep its people happy.
Assurance Intern (Former Employee) – Tysons Corner, VA – August 1, 2017
Internship experience was exactly as advertised. The people are great and went out of their way to make sure we felt welcomed as interns. Everyone was very helpful in answering questions. Got great exposure to life as an auditor and worked on meaningful projects. Pay was really good as well.

Great place to start your career, but advancement is limited without CPA. If you are young and want to work this is a nice place to be. Be prepared for more than one busy season and doing a variety of tasks as staff employee.

No Job security. Managers and Seniors are not trained in dealing with peers. Too much favoritism. No diversity at all. HR is not objective and independent. Fool there clients by over charging by putting unnessecary low quality time. No work life balance.
You need to become favorite in order to attain any pros from the firm. However, they pay fine.

Staff Accountant (Current Employee) – Detroit, MI – July 17, 2016
The culture is incredible! You truly feel like family! Work is challenging but interesting and you learn a lot! However since company isn't as big, depending on office clients, if too slow, you could get laid off.
Senior Accountant (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – June 7, 2016
While the day to day flow and atmosphere is oft times enjoyable with a relaxed corporate culture and unquestioned flexibility, that doesn't mean it isn't anything more than a budget driven, soulless, corporate charge hour carnival that never ceases to complain about the lack of effort from staff or appreciate your efforts while working 65++ hours during busy season (obligatory semi-annual leadership speeches aside). Also, it doesn't help that there is no end to busy season. I seem to find myself staffed with 50-60 charge hours even during the summer, when it's "slow." If you can manage to not stay busy, you'll be one of the few that doesn't roll forward and/or lose weeks (plural) of PTO year to year.
This may sound like a typical complaint you may find on any public accounting website forum or review - but for a firm that recently made a large acquisition to leap into the top 12 of public accounting while pretending as if that's the new big 4, they could certainly afford to pay their personnel more or at least hire a few more bodies to help manage the work load.
Co-workers are the only thing that kept me at this place for as long as I have stayed and that's only to speak of some managers and below. There's a lot of quality seniors and some managers on the upswing that will spend the time to answer your questions and help you learn and develop a skill set. Some heavy managers, seniors and partners forget that you may or may not have any practical application in any job function that they assume you should be a master of by year 2 but will neither hesitate to bad mouth youmore... at your annual review nor give you any more work of that type so that you may advance your skill set. And the rest of them nod along, even though they may have no experience working with you or even know your name.
But hey, there's free coffee in the break room and sometimes you get lucky enough to score an extra bag of powder crusted chips from the vending machine. If you can't manage to choke those down, there's plenty of charge hours to eat...less
Ability to move forward or laterally, people are kind
Consultant (Current Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – March 9, 2016
It is a fantastic place to start a career, but you have to be willing to drop your social life and live in the company. When you do that, the world is your oyster for endless opportunities within the company. People are very encouraging of helping you move up and genuinely will help you along the way.
Sr. Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – January 19, 2016
The administrative team had a high turnover and low morale when I was there. The supervisor was not in touch and didn't care if the team got along or not-she only cared if she looked good to everyone else. Adequate training was not provided for software unique to the industry. Little respect and consideration for the administrative team over all.
Great place if you are willing to put in the hours and learn quick
Accountant (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – July 24, 2014
Typical day involves completing audit workpapers, completing financial statements, and interviewing client staff. I really enjoyed the work. However, the culture and envirornment needs to be improved. I think this probably depends on the department though. There are evaluations after every job which tended to focus on the negative and even annual evaluations for new staff are harsh and pick insead of encouraging and motivating. The hardest part of the job is the stress of completing perfect work with less time to meet realization goals and charge hour budgets.
